How do I get calcium without eating dairy?

There are many other foods that contain calcium, other than dairy. These include sesame seeds, tahini, sardines with the bones, tofu, tempeh, pinto beans, bone broth, almonds, kelp, amaranth, millet, chia seeds and green leafy vegetables (spinach, kale, mustard greens, bok choy).During the detox program, your body’s ability to utilise and absorb calcium will be enhanced. For example:

  • When there is intestinal permeability and inflammation in the gut, mineral absorption is compromised, leading to low calcium absorption. The Trio program focuses on reducing inflammation and repairing gut permeability to enhance absorption.
  • Magnesium will increase the absorption of calcium into the bones. Magnesium is included in 2/3 Trio sachets and could help to improve calcium absorption.
  • Soft drink and other carbonated beverages can cause demineralisation of the bones by leeching out calcium and magnesium to correct the bodies pH. Avoiding this will improve calcium storage in the bones.
